From Todd Dills, Overdrive:
Indiana is near the top of the rankings among states that perform the fewest share of clean inspections year in, year out. Part of the reason for that, as we’ve covered in the past, is the state’s emphasis on moving violations — many of its inspections are performed at roadside after a stop for a speeding violation or another observed violation that then begins a short Level 3 credentials inspection for the driver already behind the eight ball with no possibility of coming out the end of it with a violation-free check.
The state ranks 10th this year, with less than a third of their total inspections having come out entirely violation-free over the course of calendar year 2016. But if you look at our map that illustrates improvement in truckers’ favor in that metric, you’ll see that Indiana is one of just a few states that improved in that particular metric by more than 50 percent over the preceding year.
